Baron Davis launches another NBA comeback – through D-League

baron_davis_clippersBaron Davis has already made several statements regarding his possible return to the NBA, where he last played in 2012.

A former 2-time NBA All-Star seems to be serious in launching another comeback attempt at age 36.

The agent of Davis, Todd Ramasar told Yahoo Sports that Davis is ooking forward to playing in the D-League and showing teams what he is capable of.

“He feels that the timing is right. More than anything Baron has put in the training and is confident in his body. He feels he is ready to return to the NBA,” Ramasar said.

According to Ramasar, Davis isn’t happy with how his NBA career ended – suffering from various injuries.

“Every pro athlete wants to retire on his terms,” Ramasar said. “His current last game wasn’t the way he wanted to go out. He is very excited about the D-League.”

Ramasar said that Davis’ wife recently gave birth to their second child, which pushed his hopes of joining the D-League until after Jan. 20. He said the Dallas Mavericks, who have been known to add NBA veterans to the roster of their D-League affiliate, the Texas Legends, worked out Davis in Los Angeles, Ramasar said.

Davis last played in the NBA during the 2011-12 season with the New York Knicks.

The 13-year NBA veteran averaged 16.1 points, 7.2 assists and 3.8 rebounds during his career. Davis has been working out daily with former NBA assistant and player development coach Rico Hines, his former UCLA teammate, in Los Angeles. The 6-foot-3 combo guard last played competitively in the Drew League Pro-Am in Los Angeles last summer.

Davis could make as much as $25,000 playing in the D-League and as little as $13,000.

He made $147 million during his NBA career. Since departing from the NBA, Davis has been involved in acting and also producing a documentary about the Drew League.
